What about your friends

Do you remember the song by the group named TLC, "What About Your Friends"? It’s been on my mind today and made me reflect on the power of true friendship because of a call from a dear friend who always seems to know just when I need her.

As you might know, my husband and I are gearing up for our first book signing this Friday. I’ve been pouring my heart into promoting this event for weeks, but I still can't shake the nerves about whether people will actually show up. The stress of wondering if our hard work will resonate with others has been intense.

Today, in the midst of this flurry of emotions, my friend called.

She could tell something was off just from the sound of my voice. When she asked how I was doing, I found myself opening up about my anxieties and concerns.

I admitted how nervous I was about the event and whether all our efforts would be appreciated.

Her response was nothing short of miraculous. She offered me a few words of encouragement that completely shifted my perspective. It was as if she knew exactly what I needed to hear at that moment. This isn’t the first time she’s done this every time she calls, she brings a sense of calm and clarity to my life.

This got me thinking about the true value of friendship. It’s not about the material things; it’s about having someone who knows when to lift you up, who senses your struggles even when you don’t say a word. Your friends will pray for you, your friends will be there for you, your friends know how to get a prayer through just as much as you do. I have to have strong, confident, and bold friends around we’re all lifting each other up. Iron sharpens iron.

I say all of this to remind you to cherish your friends and relationships. They hold memories, provide support, and bring so much more value to our lives than any material possession ever could. True friends are the ones who are there to support you when you need it the most, and who celebrate with you in times of joy.

So, in the spirit of friendship and support, I’m thrilled to invite you to our very first book signing this Friday. If you’re local, we’d love to see you there and share this special moment with you. If you can’t make it, our books are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Walmart. The book titles are " A Message To A Man" by Jarius Hayes and " The Hope Journal" by Candice Hayes

Thank you for being part of this journey with us. Your support and friendship mean the world to us, and we hope our books will bring as much joy and inspiration to you as you have !
